Courtney Starnes, LPC

Title: Licensed Professional Counselor

Office: Gainesville


Ms. Starnes joined the University of North Georgia in August 2019. She holds a bachelor’s in Psychology from Furman University as well as a master’s in Professional Counseling from the University of West Georgia. She has also been pursuing a Doctorate of Behavioral Health at Arizona State University since 2017. In addition to her education, she has seven years of clinical experience working in community mental health at the Cobb Community Services Board and also has experience working with college students as an administrator at Oglethorpe University.

Her primary counseling approach is a combination of Person-Centered Therapy and Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy/Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy. Although her experience has allowed her to assist adults of all ages with a variety of concerns, her primary expertise and interests lie in addressing anxiety, stress, depression and other mood disorders, trauma and overall health and wellness. Her doctoral training has focused on understanding interactions between physical and emotional health and although she is not able to directly treat physical health issues, she can offer some perspective on these interactions and assist patients in changing thoughts, habits and behaviors to support them in improving whole health and wellness.
